About Thelonious Skunk
The crew at Colorado Seed Inc really have a thing for jazz musician Thelonious Monk, so it makes sense that they’d pay tribute to this legend with the name of this strain. Thelonious Skunk is the mashup of Island Sweet Skunk and Nina Limone and offers effects that are energetic enough for an afternoon with a soothing comedown that’s perfect for nighttime.
Potency levels tend to be all over the place with this bud, as some users report finding her as low as 15% and others experiencing a high of 23%. It likely just depends on the batch you get, as these deep green nugs have minimal pistil coverage but come with a decent dusting of white crystals. As one would guess, both flavors and aromas feature a heavy skunk note but do tend to differ just a little bit. Your exhale will be punctuated with a sweet tropical taste while the air around you will smell vaguely of lemon.
Rather than a true roller-coaster type of trajectory, the Thelonious Skunk high starts off by taking you to the heights of euphoria and slowly brings you down to sedation after a few hours. Many individuals find that they just can’t wipe the grin off of their face after this strain kicks in, allowing for an increased desire to be with others in platonic and not so platonic ways. Introspection comes soon after, plunging you into the depths of your own mind and leaving you distant at times. Finally, this bud brings you down gently into a deep relaxation that could lead to sleep.
Sometimes the strain of constant medical issues can be too overwhelming, and while you want to soothe your symptoms, you also want to feel like a normal human, right? Flat-out sedation isn’t always the answer, so Thelonious Skunk is here to bring a little bit of normalcy before knocking you out. She addresses mental issues the best, so whether you struggle with depression, anxiety, or ADD/ADHD, this bud has your back. Joint issues and inflammation, as well as generalized pain, are also at the top of her list when it comes to the ailments she can battle.
Colorado Seed Inc is an incredible place to find awesome strains, however they’ve never been too keen on making seeds available for others nor do they widely publish cultivation information. In fact, Thelonious Skunk isn’t even listed on their website anymore, so hopes of growing this bud at home should be toned down quite a bit.
If you live in Colorado or on the West Coast, there’s a good chance you’ll be able to find this strain relatively easily. Give Thelonious Skunk a try if you love strong and pungent flavors or simply if you want to enjoy a mellow afternoon.
